Question about Samsung NV3 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Help please, i'm so frustrated!

Sat. my camera worked fine. I put it in my purse for the night and when I tried turning it on Sun. morning it wouldn't turn on. I assumed the battery was dead so I plugged it in. The light on the charger was steady red. I let it charge all night and half of Mon. morning. It still wouldn't come on. Now when I plug it in the light flashes red, then green, then orange and goes off. I really love my camera and want to solve the problem. Any suggestions??

Take the battery out and wipe the contacts. That did the trick for me after trying anything else!

It worked. When all is lost, smack it about a bit, what have you got to lose, I got lucky.

I lost my rag, went a bit mental and started smacking my camera against my leg. It has done something, not sure yet what, because havn't tried turning it on or anything, but the red charging light stays on now when i put it on charge although i cant take my eyes off it now incase it goes out. It's a risky option but i'll let you know if it works.

My camera won't on

Try another set of batteries first, your rechargables could have come to the end of their working life.

Camera says card write protected

I just figured it out- on my memory card there's a small "switch" on the left hand side that you can slide up and down. Make sure that this is up the top, not down towards where it says Lock. If it's down, this makes the card Write Protected.

Cam not shutting off or recharging.

Sounds like the camera shorted out. Using a camera at night temperatures could cause condensation, especially moving from outdoors to indoors and vice versa. If it is under warranty, time to send it in. I would guess it needs a new system board.

Camera won't turn on

Hi Alicimo, When anything wet is introduced to electronic circuitry, there is a risk of a short that can destroy it. Most of the time, however, it can be dried out and serve a useful life. What I would do it to take the battery out, open up the battery door, put it somewhere in your house where the sun can hit it, then wait for 4 or 5 hours. If it still doesn't operate, you could take it in to a camera shop for a cleaning, if this works, it is a small price to pay, and would certainly be better than buying a new one. Let me know if you can get it going again. Best regards, nightdiver
